My Cooking Lesson

I love, love, love it when students bring me reicpes from home.

It is extra special, when they bring all the ingredients from home and teach you how to make it.

It is like I am back in school : D

I have a lovely young lady in my class, who I will call Alaska, cause she used to live there.

Alaska, loves to cook and her mom has the best candy recipes. Alaska was telling me all about this cracker toffee recipe that her family makes for the holidays. It was kinda a coincidence that she was telling me about this recipe because I had just bought a new magazine with a similar recipe it it. Alaska said that her mom would not let her make it at home for now because the recipe is so good and they eat the whole batch in one night.

Alaska really wanted me to taste this recipe, so she decided to teach me how to do it.

Alaska brought all the ingredients to school, already measured out!

The first thing she did was melt 2 sticks of butter in a sauce pan.

Next she lined a cookie sheet with saltine crackers.

After the butter has melted, add in the dark brown sugar.

Bring to a boil, stirring constantly.

Pour the boiled butter and brown sugar over the crackers.

Spread the mixtures over the crackers. Next, you put it in the oven for a few minutes.

While the cracker toffee is in the oven, chop up the pecans.

When the toffee comes out of the oven, sprinkle the chocolate chips over it. Let it set until the chocolate chips melt.

When the chocolate chips have melted, spread it over the toffee. Sprinkles the pecans on top.

All done! Now it is time to break it apart.

Alaska was a great teacher. I hope I was a good student.

When can I eat? I even sound like a student.

“Miss. Alaska, can I please have a taste?”


I hope you try this recipe. It taste so good you will crack up!

  1. This looks unbelievably delicious! Thank you for sharing this. I love making candy and this looks like a great one to try. Trevor loves salty sweet sweets. This is going to be a nice surprise treat for him one day soon =) Tell your student thank you for sharing as well 🙂

    • This cracker toffee is insanely good. The salty crisp taste of the cracker with the toffee and chocolate on top….I had to lock it in my office so I would stay out of it. I hope you can find time to make it with your little ones.
